Civil War Suite
This band classic in three movements is based on several of the many songs frequently sung by both the North and the South during the “WarBetween the States” of 1861-1865. The first, “The Gathering Clouds,” portrays the militant moods and tensions of the period. “All Quiet Along the Potomac Tonight” is meditative in styleand includes several typical camp songs, many reflecting a soldier's lo neliness. The finale features “When Johnny Comes Marching Home.” Civil War Suite remains one of the very best band publications based on the rich, musical heritage from America's past.
